Songweavers Women’s Chorus of Concord Community Music School presents its annual spring concerts, entitled “I Am Light,” April 14 in Manchester and April 27 in Concord. Directed by Peggo Horstmann Hodes, the 100+ women of Songweavers will sing songs about light. The title song, composed by India.Arie, celebrates the light within each person, the spark that binds us together. The concert opens with “What Light Do You Shine In the World?” – and includes an array of inspiring songs about the variety of ways people express their light in the world, including singing, shining, dancing, drumming, praying, healing and changing the world.
The Songweavers will be accompanied by the Songweaver Drummers, directed by Grace Schust and Lindsey Schust. In addition, musicians Kent Allyn and Paul Hodes will fill in on piano and guitar.
Songweavers, New Hampshire’s original women’s community chorus, is a program of the Concord Community Music School in Concord, NH. The goal of Songweavers is to build community through singing together, and in particular singing about what binds us together and surpasses our differences. Through music, says Horstmann Hodes, the Songweavers “aim to touch and rekindle our common humanity, without fear, politics, or ideology.”
